So, I can't stop now with these boys. If you are at all aware of a thing called the Whitney Biennial, well, they stole the show in a Banksy style move. They, I think, are arguing that the consumption of spectacle and the spectacle of consumption are intimately intertwined.
I was wondering when this might occur (Famegame) and in what format. Well, thanks to Jose and Seth, the brains behind Carte Blanche, we have an real time accumulator of celebrity capital. Eisenhower's notion of a Military Industrial Complex may not have been as prescient as we have been led to believe. Can we blame him for not understanding that it would be a Celebrity Industrial Complex that would be the threat to the American dream of republic?
